Asian food is everywhere in Australia, and it comes in the form of Korean BBQ, Japanese sushi, Chinese dim sum, Thai curries and much, much more. Taiwanese food is a little thinner on the ground than those listed above, but if you head to Zetland in southern Sydney, you can pick up a piece of Taiwan in the form of Wu-Gu. They’re easily reached on Defries Avenue, close to the M1 and Green Square train station, so make a move over and get ready to experience specialities from the ‘Beautiful Island,’ as the Portuguese called it. Reserve your table now.
The food was excellent. The wine list was ok but not quite as good as the food. We'll return to eat at Wu-Gu again sometime soon.
The cuisine of Taiwan might go slightly under the radar in the wider milieu of Asian eating in Sydney. Compared to the dim sum delights of Chinatown, the Marrickville Vietnamese village and the countless Thai, Korean and Japanese joints to be found everywhere in the city, Taiwanese cooking is not that easy to come by, but when you find some, it’s well worth giving it a go. Wu-Gu on Defries Avenue in Zetland is a prime example of the genre, so head on over – Green Square train, since you’re asking – and make the most of this prime exponent of Taiwanese cuisine.
Wu-Gu offers up a menu of Taiwanese favourites, of course, so let us talk you through some of the specialities on offer in this part of Sydney. Some of the more obscure dishes include stewed pig’s ear, tea-smoked chicken and their signature Taiwanese beef noodle soup, and alongside these you can also pick up a few more authentic Asian favourites like sweet and sour chicken, pan-fried pork dumplings and wonton soup. Book a table at Wu-Gu on Defries Avenue in Zetland for an eating experience to remember in the heart of southern Sydney.
